Ancient and Future Culture

Andreas Katsulas who played G'Kar on Babylon 5, as well as a lot of other great characters over his career, has passed away. It's redundant to say, but he did an incredible amount of good work, particularly considering the makeup and conditions under which he did it. The character had a fascinating inner and outer life, and it was always well-played. (Orac's tribute is nicely done, including an excellent synopsis of the G'Kar-Londo arcs which made B5 so satisfying as literary television [and here's some of G'Kar's best lines, but only a small sampling], and a bit more of his career is laid out here, including his midwestern origins)

In lighter news, graffiti is eternal.
